Grey Sparrow like bird, but I can't find a match.

(Oshawa, Ontario)


Oshawa Ontario, back yard, likes the grass more then the feeder. It looks like a obese female House Sparrow...maybe that's what it is lol.


Not skittish, I got 1Meter away for picture.

In picture you can see a small dark spot on the breast, black/grey beak, white throat.

Thanks for looking.
Any idea what this Plain Jane is named?
